[aprssig] Mobile non-RF beacon rate?

Assume that all packets seen on APRS-IS can be gated to RF; therefore, there is no difference in operation on APRS-IS and on RF.  If it is remembered that the primary purpose of APRS-IS is to interconnect the amateur radio RF networks to provide a world-wide amateur radio digital communications network (APRS is a communications protocol, not just a tracking protocol; right, Bob?), loading on APRS-IS (all facilities donated by amateur radio operators) as well as loading on RF networks (many IGates are configured to gate more than just messages and associated posits) will stay at a sustainable level.

Hope this helps.
